I went through the Nook STR and currently have a Kobo Glo.
I saw an ad on kijiji and managed to buy a kindle keyboard with the leather cover for $40 and its fucking amazing.
Physical buttons/ no gimmicky shit. I never used the backlight and i cant really notice the better e-ink screen on my kobo.
I just wanted a cheapo ereader to gift my sister and i am seriously considering keeping the Kindle and giving her my Kobo Glo.
Why is this never discussed or mentioned here? In pretty much every "top x books of all time" lists it seems to always make the top 5. Is it actually good or just a meme?
It's pretty bad. Don't trust book rankings (with a couple exceptions), trust talented writers, esteemed critics, and genuine intellectuals. And no where in their vast corpus of literary critique do you see, say, Nabokov, Wilson, Sontag, Northrop Frye, etc. talk about this weak novel because it is not high art/literature.
ITT: recommend good but recently published books.
What do you guys think of majoring in English Literature? I plan on working in education, so I see it as a viable option, in addition to the fact that I enjoy reading and analyzing literature.
To any English majors out there, do you regret studying literature? If not, what did you gain from it?
Sounds insane, but the reason I want to major in English over business is because I feel teaching is a much more noble and fulfilling occupation than anything business could offer. I don't like exploiting people for profit either so I would prefer to teach; although, I am conscious there is such thing as just business.
It's honestly difficult deciding what I want to do for a living. I certainly don't want to be stuck in a cubicle for eight hours a day though.
Do you guys knows any good Spanish literature I can read?

This isn't even a competition. There is quite literally zero chance of anyone beating Rushdie.
Give me a really good book/series with a bad ass WIZARD as the protag
The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell
Its a series, that's the first book
It's a historical fiction story about King Arthur(1st person though hes not the narrator) that accurately depicts the British Isles in the early dark ages.
Merlin in this story is the most badass motherfucking wizard ive ever seen In fiction. He doesnt show up til halfway through the story and is built up mythically then he keeps dissapearing and showing up enigmatically, often as a dues ex but not always. His personality is just fantastically done, even though there is no actual magic.
I got a second hand Dickinson collection and just realized it's the edited and truncated poems from before all the originals were dug up, should I bother with this one or just get a complete one?
It's good enough I'm sure, how heavily is it edited? I've never even heard the story of how the "originals" were dug up. I love the "narrow fellow" poem. Also, Emily is proof that even shut-ins can be great poets. This is inspiring for people like myself.

Every time I go to bed after a night of writing without an agent... I know that feel. I know it hard.
Only entries that are objectively correct, thanks
